“I am looking forward  to  being  on  the  Ecoluxe London catwalk  during  London  fashion  week, helping  to  promote   sustainable  luxury  with  an  ethos  as  well  as   the  fabulous  creative  embroidery   of  Fine  Cell  Work” says an enthusiastic Jan de Villeneuve, top model.

For its 8th edition, Ecoluxe London teams up with award-winning prison charity and social enterprise Fine Cell Work for the first ever sustainable luxury fashion show during London Fashion Week, with an online silent auction to raise funds, including donations from Stella McCartney, Margaret Howell and Chloe in support of Fine Cell Work, that will be embellished by its embroiderers to create unique pieces. There will also be a drinks reception.

On 17th February 2014, 19.00 in Kingsway Hall, 66 Great Queen Street, WC2B 5BX Covent Garden.

Fashion is a new departure for the Fine Cell Work embroiderers who are more familiar with embroidering intricate patterns for cushions and interior accessories to the highest standards. For Autumn/ Winter 2014 Fine Cell Work will be promoting their SWAG bag collection.

“My mother sewed beautifully and she inspired my passion for sewing and embroidery. I always seemed to be making tapestry cushions on film sets which I gave away to friends.

There is great satisfaction in seeing the finished product after the hard work.

 Sometimes I would become so engrossed in it that I was more interested in finishing the cushion than the film!” (Dame Judi Dench, Patron of Fine Cell Work)

This is the first time that Fine Cell Work has collaborated with fashion designers to embellish their pieces with exquisite embroidery.

“It is fantastic that Ecoluxe London are supporting Fine Cell Work. The Ecoluxe London Fashion Show is important for the new opportunities it will bring prisoners for work in the future in the fashion industry. I thoroughly support it.” (Wayne Hemingway, MBE)

We are so excited about the show. We have incredible brands from all over the world this season; we are also hugely proud to be able to showcase the prisoners’ embroidery work. This is a wonderful opportunity to promote an amazing charity (Stamo, co-founder of Ecoluxe London).
